Expert Group on Anticounterfeiting Technology
The first meeting of the Expert Group on Anticounterfeiting Technology  will be held, on 28 - 29 november 2017, in the EUIPO Brussels Office (Rue de la Loi, 223).
In order to the activity of the Expert Group, the commander of Guardia di Finanza’s military team specialized in trademarks, patents and intellectual property, Col. t. ISSMI Salvatore PAIANO, will participate.
The Observatory is creating this Expert Group in order to use tools and devices to empower law enforcers and brand owners in the detection of fake goods. This is a follow up to the JRC report Enforcers and brand owners’ empowerment in the fight against counterfeiting, which recommends creating within the Observatory a specialised expert group to monitor empowerment techniques appearing in the market and to advise EUIPO on the integration in its Enforcement Database of the most efficient techniques, thus sharpening EU enforcers’ capacity to fight against counterfeiting.
